Hello all!
I'm new to the modding game for saturns, and I have a 2000 Saturn LS1. 2.2L 4 cylinder ecotec. An older version of the 2.2 in the ION and the Chevy Cobalt. So does anyone know if there are any universal parts I can use for my LS that are actually meant for an ION or cobalt? I've looked around a lot and can't really find much info on mods for the LS1 other than a turbo and CAI. I built my own Spectre CAI and I'm looking to keep going.
Any info you have would be a big help!!

from the photos it looks like its the same engine as the one in the ion. but before you commit to doing any serious mods you have alot of work to do.
the l61 2.2 is only built to handle 200 hp anything over that and you run into serious problems.
forged pistons
forged rods
and cylinder sleeves
and then you have to consider how you will be able to tune after mods
do alot more research before you decide to do anything
good luck
